Dozens of buy­ers queue for homes in New­town

Bray People - - NEWS -

Dozens of first-time buy­ers queued from dawn to snap up a new home in New­town­moun­tkennedy on Fri­day morn­ing.

Fifty prop­er­ties rang­ing in price from €199,000 to €310,000 were launched last week as part of the pres­ti­gious ‘Wick­low Hills’ de­vel­op­ment in New­town­moun­tkennedy.

De­spite not even be­ing built yet, staff at the Grey­stones branch of Sherry Fitzger­ald were in­un­dated with of­fers for the two-, three- and four-bed­room homes when the doors opened at 9 a.m.

Jill O’Neill of Sherry Fitzger­ald said: ‘It’s the sec­ond phase of the de­vel­op­ment so we had built up an en­quiry list; 38 went on Fri­day morn­ing, and there’s quite a bit of in­ter­est in the re­main­ing 12.

‘It’s mostly young cou­ples look­ing for a starter home.

The first phase of the €150m Tower Homes de­vel­op­ment in­clud­ing 30 acres of park­land and a creche sold out within weeks of go­ing on the mar­ket last April.

The houses are ex­pected to be ready to move into later this year.
